Aside from the impact of cutting your household’s carbon footprint by tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year, solar units can drastically reduce your electricity bill in two distinct ways. Firstly, by generating your own electricity from the solar panels you reduce the electricity you need to buy from your power provider. Secondly, any excess “Green” electricity your system produces is sold back to the power provider. These two benefits mean many households will be able to reduce their electricity bill significantly.
Another often overlooked benefit is that the solar units increase both the energy rating and value of your house.
